Proposal rules for new spring student tradition

As communicated last spring, CSU is creating a committee involving students to review events that would establish a new tradition to end the school year. Students are invited to submit their proposals, and only student submissions will be considered. The university will provide $10,000 in funding to support the event; student organizers must commit to raising funds to pay for additional expenses.

Student leaders will be involved in this committee, representing various areas of campus.

University members will include:

  • Student Affairs
  • Campus Activities
  • External Relations
  • Facilities Management

Rules for proposals

  • The sky is the limit! We welcome creative proposals that also must be executable as a real event
  • The event must be created as a new tradition to celebrate the end of the academic year
  • The event must be for CSU students only, and must include a plan for checking student IDs to ensure that only CSU students attend
  • Themes are permissible, such as an Orange Out event, costumed event, etc.
